What van to buy in the morning?

Postby Mark J Long » Mon Dec 14, 2015 2:22 am

Hello all,

I am going to buy a van tomorrow, and I have narrowed it down to one of two.

Both vans are MK 7 Jumbo,

1) 07 reg (built 10/2006) it has 180,000 miles on it. The price is £3,350.
The thing that is putting me of is i have checked its last MOTs and it has failed each time, and on the last one the steering rack was an advisory as was the rear brake discs.

2) 09 reg (built 6/2009) it has 97,000 miles on the clock. The price is £5,700.
I have looked up its last MOTs and it has passed with only one small advisory.

Both vans are the 110 ps and have the same axel in them.

I am swaying towards the newer van, as i will only do about 15,000 miles a year in it and think i would be able to sell that for more in 4 years with 160,000 on the clock apposed to a van two years older with 240,000 miles on it.

I’m leaving on the train up to Edinburgh at 6am so any quick bits of info would be great.
